Johanna refers to a previous episode with Cecilia Osterman, which you can listen to here. We are also discussing the difference between autonomous ships and unmanned ships. I refer to a scale for autonomy for vehicles. Here is the link to Wikipedia, where you can read more about the different stages of autonomy.  Thank you for listening to the Shipping Podcast. I wish you all the best for the new year!
